Events and festivals

We're fast tracking the development of regional events and festivals. Not only do they attract visitors by the thousands, these events are also an important part of the Clarence way of life.

A veritable hotpot of events, with more than 100 celebrations held annually. Everything from business conferences to the Australian Goanna Pulling Championships, Bridge to Bridge Ski Race, Wakeboard Championships, Gate to Plate Regional Food, and the truly unique Jacaranda Festival happen in the Clarence.

We actively support our event partners through our annual sponsorship program and measure our success along the way. And things are looking great for Clarence events.

Funding and eligibility criteria apply to our sponsorship programs. Grants and funding opportunities are also available from State and Federal Government Departments and philanthropic organisations. Click here to learn more about other grants opportunities.
